Disease prevention and treatment

She survived : lady survived huge cancer development after surgery.

Breast cancer is the most frequent malignancy in women and is a heterogeneous disease on the molecular level. Over the past 10–15 years, treatment concepts have evolved to take this heterogeneity into account, with emphasis being placed on more biologically directed therapies and treatment deployed to reduce the adverse effects of treatment. Despite the inherent molecular heterogeneity which is a driving principle of modern day treatments, some features such as the impact of locoregional tumour burden or metastatic patterns are shared and influence therapy.

Early breast cancer that is, cancer that is contained in the breast or that has only spread to the axillary lymph nodes is considered curable. Improvements in multimodal therapy have led to increasing chances for cure in 70 to 80% of patients. By contrast, advanced (metastatic) disease is not considered curable using currently available therapeutic options. However, advanced breast cancer is a treatable disease, for which the main goals of therapy are to prolong survival and control symptoms with low treatment associated toxicity to maintain or improve quality of life.
